Anyway whilst I was photographing some stuff yesterday I thought I'd photograph some of my favourite bags (or purses for our friends across the pond!). I'm not a collector, I buy what I like but only when I see it at the right price!
Up first is my first ever lucite bag, it's a combination of lucite and plastic woven, you'll see by the pic. There's a few things wrong with it, it has a chip in the lid and the bottom is warped, I think someone stupidly must have put it on top of something hot at some point. However in reality you can't really see the faults and because of the faults I got it at a good price, also I don't have to worry about it too much as it's already been through a lot.
I love a bit of sparkle, well I love a lot of sparkle actually!
Here's a pic of the damaged bottom which you can only just see if you know in the pic above.
You can see the detail of the side more here, as I said I love sparkly!
Next up is a nice lucite top but metal body bag. This again I got at a very reasonable price and because it's silver AND gold it goes with everything.
It's actually a Dorset Rex, I still didn't pay much though!
Then here's a bag I have never used but don't want to until I find the right opportunity, it's never been used, I bought it in it's original box and everything is intact, but I just have not had the right time or place to use it. I took it to NY once but it was so blumming cold the night we went out to the theatre, I didn't end up dressing up as much as I'd wanted to, well it was December in NYC!
So how amazing is that, look at that compact, never used, it makes me want to use it, but I want to take it out on a special occasion! Am I mad? Please do let me know!
Then the next 2 are my favourites, did I mention I like glittery?
I used to have a plain white lucite bag but when the opportunity came to buy this glittery one I couldn't resist, so bought this and sold my plain one. I much prefer glittery lucite to plain, unless of course it's that lovely amber colour that would be just wrong!
Then my most favourite of all
Look at that sparkle! Oh yes I'm a rhinestone and sparkle girl for sure!
These are all such works of art, I have them displayed in my bedroom, although I need to set up a better display, however they make me smile every morning.
